Rare Fossil Aquatic Lacewing Larva and Muscoid Fly In Baltic Amber

This is a rare and detailed, 44 million year old fossil aquatic lacewing larva (order Neuroptera - family Nevrorthidae - Species Rophalis relicta) and muscoid fly (order diptera - subsection Acalyptratae) preserved in Baltic amber.

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order and we will also email you a high resolution digital copy.

Please note: The market is flooded with fake amber, which is often plastics with insects embedded in it. The insect inclusions in amber are almost always tiny. Larger insects are able to struggle free and are not preserved. If you see something that looks too good to be true, it often is. Make sure to buy from a reputable dealer.
